The blood-orange moon

rises high in the sky behind me

as I glance in the rearview mirror

at an image the defines me.

My past cannot be undone

as it is always right behind me

and no matter how hard I run

the shadows still can find me.

An ominous melody begins to fill

 the air that surrounds and binds me

as the moon watches down closely

always threatening to reveal me.
